1. Use Short but CTA keywords in your CBD meta tags

There's no point to write long meta title tags in 2020. Optimal title size is 40-55 symbols

For example: Best CBD Oils for Anxiety in 2020 - Depression Alliance - where "Best" is CTA word.

More CTA words:

  • Best
  • for sale
  • affordable
  • cheapest
  • 2020
  • discount
  • 100% Natural

3. Use emoji's in your meta description (Oil, hemp, and others)

2020 is the year of messengers and graphic info. You should somehow "highlight" your snippet and the best way is by using an emoji. You can use up to 3 emoji's in your CBD Description meta tag.
